NAATPN, Inc., in conjunction with the National Medical Association, the NAACP and the Southeast Health Equity Council, is pleased to host a national conference to address the state of health in America and to outline a platform to promote equity in African American communities. On September 11- 13, 2018, NAATPN, Inc. will host the first ever State of Black Health National Conference in Atlanta, GA at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta.

The State of Black Health National Conference will address current health, economic, and social justice disparities impacting African Americans and outline a national policy platform to address those disparities. Tobacco use kills more than 45,000 African Americans annually and chronic diseases, including HIV/AIDS, continue to disproportionately impact African Americans. In addition, workforce development and the attainment of livable wages remains a primary concern in most African American urban, and rural communities. Current conditions in the U.S. aren’t conducive to positive health outcomes in African American communities; in fact, unless a new policy agenda is developed and implemented, the pursuit of African American health equity could remain out of reach. Registration is open now.
